    IT OUT BOYS.

    Friend already bought the JPN version (thank god for immigrants with family back home).

    Except I have 3 quizzes today.

    Guess I'll watch him play later or start a file by myself or some shit.

    Man, been a long time since Till the End of Time.
     
  2. Oh thank god they went back to the more anime style than that garbage psuedo human style for SO4 (which is why I never played SO4 and never plan to).

    Edit: Well once again a mostly human looking cast like SO3, but better clothing design. Still not as unique designs compared to SO1 and SO2. I mean, you have the entire Sci-fi/fantasy genre and you can make any race...why so many humans =(.

    I'm already getting it because SO4 was a disappointment.

    Till the End of Time was still the best when it first came out, but I'm definitely hopeful for this one.

    Freaking sidekicks for guard counters, lol.

    I count Covenant of the plume as 3, and I really don't care about Hrist (I mean she'd be the next logical game since 1(Lenneth), 2(Silmeria) etc

    I don't think that's the game in which they're referring, this is probably a side game developed to garner interest

    (at least I hope not)

    I am so excited! Star Ocean 5 is bringing back the elements of SO3 that I loved- and of course, a beautiful soundtrack <3

    as a fellow SO2/SO3 fan, i too look forward to this...
     
  13. i remember watching my roommate play so4, and it felt like 'play five minutes, ten minute cut scene' - is this accurate for the rest of the series

    Not really. They only get super cutscene heavy towards the end of the games.

  15. Well, the beginning of Star Ocean 2 was play five minutes, be stuck in the first town for 1-2 hours. However, after that you're free~.

    Star Ocean is not that heavy on cutscenes, tbh.

    At least it isn't hallway fantasy XIII.

    So far: Game's not bad, but reviews from people have been bombarding it to ~2.5-3 out of 5.

    ~20 hours to finish the story. People complained about it being too short. And censorship. Idgaf about if they censor things, but some reviews just blasted the censorship and made it their prominent reason to give a bad review out of it.

    Gameplay is solid, has some problems about balance, but it reminds me of Star Ocean 1-2.

    Here's a no spoiler review of it for those who are curious (still has some spoilers on gameplay and describes how the game could be broken, but has no story spoilers):

  19. Oh, it's only for PS4 when it's released outside JP...Forget that. Time to import the PS3 version.
